Why Consider Postgraduate Studies?

A portrait of an Asian student in a libraryA postgraduate study or degree seems to be a great addition to one’s CV. But are there any tangible benefits from it? Case in point, will it increase your chances of getting hired?

Whether it is a full-time or part-time degree in Singapore or elsewhere, there seems to be some sort of prestige that comes with a postgraduate diploma or certificate. Here is what you should know.

The Basics

The modern job market is challenging to navigate. There is ample demand for workers and an equally stacked roster of applicants. Competition is fierce and jobseekers need every bit of advantage to set themselves apart. Graduate school finishers are eligible for higher-tier employment because of their skills (and the mastery of said skills). As for higher salaries, postgraduate finishers might not be a lock, but they have a better chance of warranting one.

Many believe that a postgraduate certificate or degree is not just some piece of paper with recommendations on it. All the skills from the undergraduate level are good, but they are far from mastered even in a four or five-year course. A master’s degree builds up on said skills. You can consider postgraduate degree holders as ‘levelled up’ versions of their undergraduate counterparts. They have improved time management skills, self-discipline, and overall maturity.

What Do Employers Think?

Employers are likely to welcome anyone with a postgraduate degree. While it is not automatic, it certainly gives any holder an advantage. Bu they will not stop there. Any employer would want to know what a specific applicant gained from continuing education. Any person can show up with a certificate or a diploma, but fail to back up his or her qualifications. This is not an uncommon occurrence.

In the UK, postgraduate degrees matter most of the time. In fact, the Commission for Employment and Skills states that by 2022, about 1 in 7 jobs (roughly 15 percent) will require a postgraduate degree. Considering that it is only five years down the road, it might be a good time to start going back to school.
